Baked Hot Chocolate Donuts

These tender chocolate baked donuts are baked in the oven and never fried.

They’re perfectly tender and topped with a yummy chocolate frosting and sprinkles.

Perfect for breakfast or a sweet treat.

 

 

INGREDIENTS NEEDED TO PREPARE DONUTS

All-purpose flour: Make sure to spoon and level the flour so you don’t end up with dense, dry baked donuts. 

Cocoa powder: You’ll need unsweetened cocoa powder.

Baking soda: Helps the donuts rise in the oven and prevents them from being dense. 

Salt: Enhances the chocolate flavor and balances out the sweetness of the batter. 

Buttermilk: Makes for ultra moist donuts.

Granulated sugar: Sweetens the donuts without adding flavor. 

Egg: Adds moisture and helps bind the batter together. 

Butter: Needs to be melted and given time to cool before being mixed into the batter. 

Vanilla extract: Pure vanilla delivers the best flavor. 

Powdered sugar: Is used in the glaze to sweeten it. 

Milk: Add more milk to the chocolate glaze as you see fit to thin it out. 

 

 

ADDITIONAL RECIPE NOTES

Storage: Donuts are best eaten the same day, but can be stored in an airtight container for 2-3 days.

Freezing instructions: Let the donuts cool completely, then seal in an airtight bag or freezer-safe container.

Freeze (unglazed) for up to 3 months. Wait to glaze the donuts until you thaw and serve them. 

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO BAKED HOT CHOCOLATE DONUTS

Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

Spoon the batter into the donut cavities making sure to only fill them about 2/3 – 3/4 of the way full.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the donut comes out clean.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes in the pan.

Remove donuts from the pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

 

TO MAKE THE GLAZE:

In a separate bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, and milk. If the glaze is too thick, slowly add one tablespoon of milk at a time until it has reached your desired consistency.

Dip the tops of the donuts into the glaze and transfer back to the wire rack to cool and allow the glaze to harden. Top with sprinkles if desired
